So, the best way – is to start from IPTV definition:
IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) is a system where a television is transmitted using Internet Protocol all over network infrastructure. A general definition of IPTV is television content that, instead of being delivered through traditional radio and cable formats, is received by the viewer through the technologies used for computer networks.
So in few words – IPTV is a new generation of Television.
The main merit of IPTV – is interaction of video services and availability of wide range of additional services, such as Video on Demand (VoD), TVoIP, Time Shifted TV, Network Personal Video Recorder, Electronic Program Guide (EPG), Near Video on Demand. Besides, IPTV include a package of additional services. They are: Video Telephony, Voting, Information Portals, Web, Games, MOD KOD.
A little from History of IPTV:
In 1994, ABC’s World News Now was the first television show to be broadcast over the Internet, using the CU-SeeMe videoconferencing software.
The term IPTV first appeared in 1995 with the founding of Precept Software by Judith Estrin and Bill Carrico. Precept designed and built an internet video product named “IP/TV”. IP/TV was an MBONE compatible Windows and Unix based application that moved single and multi-source audio/video traffic, ranging from low to DVD quality, using both unicast and IP multicast RTP/RTCP.
In 2006, AT&T launched its U-Verse IPTV service, comprising a national head end and regional video-serving offices. AT&T offered over 300 channels in 11 cities with more to be added in 2007 and beyond. While using IP protocols, AT&T has built a private IP network exclusively for video transport.
Today almost all plots of land penetrate IPTV. Streaming video software today more and more become part of everyday’s life.
The question of the “Salary” is one of the most interesting and also mysterious question that almost every person is taking an active interest in discussion when pertinent time was come. And almost every person wants to know the great secret – salary of his colleagues to compare with own salary (may be boss underestimated his skills and the time to do meeting with boss is come), but how can he ask them?
Salary is also a very private theme to have a talk about. We try to lift the veil of mystery from this question and you will know not only about the salary of your colleagues but will have a possibility to compare your own salary with salary of developers in various countries. I hope you will take a good time while reading this
First of all, let’s gossip about the salary of our neighbours, then will travel to America and the sweetest information about the salary in our country will leave in the end.:)
The information technology industry today is an integral part of every sphere in the world. Belarus, Russia, Ukraine also did not become exception here. Over the past few years, many international and domestic companies came to the IT market. The high growth of this segment has led in turn to the competitive job market. It is therefore not surprising that for several years we have shortages of qualified personnel and wage growth. The most popular professionals of the sector – are middle-level managers, system administrators, Java, PHP,.Net programmers, Computer Systems engineers, testers, webmasters, a systems integrators. However, you can take that level of salary of IT-specialists reached its maximum, or close to it.
An additional factor there is a global financial crisis that has affected the major players in the IT market. However, we are not expecting major losses, mass layoffs or budget cuts in IT in the near future.
The reason – it is the role of IT-industry business and the specifics of the work. First, many IT-projects are long-term and budgets for companies implementing information technology products are approved in advance, so IT-companies have orders and projects for the same period. Secondly, IT specialisation (like development of Internet TV software solutions) increases the efficiency of the company, which is an essential factor in the crisis.
